 Armistice Day - Remembrance Day:

At the Eleventh hour, of the Eleventh Day, of the Eleventh month -  Armistice.
We remember them, with a two minute silence.

For my Grandfather, mustard gassed in the Great War.
We were fortunate that he lived, although his life was shortened. He passed away when I was six years old.

For all who suffered and fell in that war and all the wars after -

 We remember. 


  1. Pat, this beautiful flower is a nicest tribute to all the fallen of the Great War. Ciao!

    Mustard gas caused dreadful suffering, attacking the lungs. Somehow my grandad remained cheerful though he suffered. I wish he'd been around for longer xx

  10. This is wonderful Pat! So soft and beautiful :0) Poppy's are my favourite flower. I have almost finished painting some poppy's myself too, though in a very different style to this and using acrylics. I hope to get a chance to finish them in the morning and post over the weekend :0)

  11. Thank you Sandra.
    Shall look forward to seeing your poppies xx
